The Skeleton In The School — An Elementary Musical

Book & Lyrics by Linda Britt

Music by Colin Britt

When four students at the Richard Scarry School in Lewburn, Maine, (location can be changed) discover a skeleton in the boiler room, rumors fly. Is it a former janitor? Is it their old principal, who retired (or so they thought)? Is it the teacher no one liked? And should they even tell anyone? After all, the boiler room is off limits to students, so if they tell, won’t they get in trouble? Will the truth about the skeleton ever come out? Produce this delightful short musical for your school or youth group at Halloween, or any time of the year! It’s easy to cast and stage with 5th and 6th Grade students and only 5 songs. No huge dramatic structure, just a simple premise, and your students will be feeling good about themselves and their friends as they tackle this fun little show. A great introduction to theatre and performing!
